TOKYO-MOL Logistics (Japan) Co., Ltd. (President: Tetsuya Minato) today announced that its new warehouse in northern Manila is now in full operation, providing contract logistics of completed products and service parts for a major Japanese machinery manufacturer.
The warehouse opened in July 2015, initially handling the storage of completed products. This month, it expanded its service to cover service parts.
The warehouse is ideally located, about 20km north of Metro Manila, and about 2km from the Pan Philippine Highway. The elevated floor facility has total floor space of 4,000m2, making it one of the largest warehouses run by a Japanese company in the Philippines.
An MOL Logistics subsidiary in the Philippines is entrusted with warehouse operation, with a Warehouse Management System (WMS) featuring bar code-based lot control. The facility stores products produced at the client’s plants in China and Thailand, as well as service parts in plastic boxes on racks. These items are all for the Filipino market.
The subsidiary’s Customs Clearance Division handles import custom clearance of completed products and parts after their arrival in the Philippines and drayage to the warehouse. The subsidiary also arranges ocean transport to the Philippines, ensuring an integrated approach to intermodal logistics. The subsidiary has 42 employees in the Philippines, including five in the warehouse and eight in the Customs Clearance Division.
The MOL Logistics Group continually strives to further improve service quality and meet diversified customer needs as a total logistics company that provides a full lineup of logistics services centered on air and ocean forwarding. And the group continues to develop ever more detailed logistics services that have been developed and refined all over the world – services only MOL Logistics can provide – and proposing and providing optimal logistics solutions for every customer.
